Tad Speaks – Mr. Opinionated

EVERYTHING is cause for Tad to speak his mind nowadays. And he has no qualms about letting us know what’s on that busy little mind of his.

A couple of days ago, he got into the refrigerator – something he does far too frequently – picked up a juice box, sat himself down at the kitchen table, stripped off the straw and prepared to drink it.

And he hadn’t asked if he could have it – something which he is completely capable of doing.

So I swooped in and grabbed the juice box off the table, and stuck it back in the fridge while the Webmaster reminded him that he needs to ask BEFORE getting himself anything out of the fridge.
